About this event

The 2020 Atlanta Education Stakeholder Summit includes a panel discussion on supporting students and families facing the COVID-19 and racial injustice pandemics featuring students, guardians, and teachers. Attendees will also participate in interactive sessions with leaders from 10 amazing organizations, institutions, and schools that are representative of our city's education landscape. Each participant will have two opportunities to learn more about an organization and its leadership, as well as help brainstorm opportunities specific to the organization of their choice.

The end goal being to connect Atlantans with opportunities to support organizations leading the charge in the education and youth development space -- for short and potential long-term engagement.
